“A warn­ing board was right be­side the car, but the driver still opened the win­dow. Don’t they know that tigers can hurt hu­mans?” So said a man sur­named Wang who vis­ited Badal­ing Wild An­i­mal Park where tourists can drive their cars into the zoo and travel through an­i­mal en­clo­sures. On July 22, in North­east Tiger en­clo­sure, Wang saw that the sun­roof of a white car was open and a child who was around 7 years old kept com­ing out of the win­dow dur­ing the tour. There were tigers close to where the ve­hi­cle was driv­ing. Even though there were some pa­trol cars around the zoo, no one stopped the child and warned them. In 2016, at the same place, two fe­male vis­i­tors got out of the car il­le­gally and one of them was killed by the tigers. (Source: Bei­jing Morn­ing Post)
